The Matildas play their first match in the Group Stage this Friday, so time for a thread to record our collective joy or bitter disappointment as we progress to our inevitable triumph over or soul destroying defeat to Japan.
We’re obviously getting nothing out of this game, other than tbh it’s an indictment how little Raso has produced against such dross. One header and one lay off for Carpenter? Get Vine on.
Also, pretty disrespectful to lump Alannah up top for the last 10 or 15 mins. If they just wanna let her score on her birthday then she could’ve taken the second penno. If it’s shape related cos we don’t need 2 CB’s (Wheeler is able to drop in if needed and can distribute) then make a sub. No point hoofing crosses to someone who’s only ever going to be on the end of set pieces later in the tournament.
